ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. -- A motorist hit 115 miles an hour with his lights trying to elude Palisades Interstate Parkway police before he was cornered in Englewood Cliffs just after midnight Monday, authorities said.

PIP Police Officer Joseph Villone began chasing the white Acura after it sped by him at the Exit 2 ramp in Alpine at 105 miles an hour, Police Chief Michael Coppola said Tuesday morning.

The driver cut his lights near Tenafly, then turned off at Exit 1 onto Palisade Avenue, he said.

Villone and two Englewood Cliffs officers closed in on the car after several vehicles blocked it at a red light, the chief said.

The driver, 25-year-old Shawn S. Henry of Brooklyn, was charged with eluding and issued several traffic summonses. A judge ordered him held on $25,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.

A passenger was later released without charges, Coppola said.
